Against a backdrop of far-reaching
cybersecurity breaches, working
from home protocols, and an ever-
more digital, mobile and data-driven
society, in his welcoming remarks,
Philip KAM, General Manager, Institute
Development, The Hong Kong Institute of
Bankers (HKIB) said the theme “Securing
the ‘New Normal’ of Banking Operation”,
was chosen so that participants could
gain a better understanding of current
threats, as well as identify and prepare
to manage cybersecurity challenges
in the future. Featuring keynote sessions and panel debates, both physically at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and virtually, more than 685 participants joined HKIB Cybersecurity Solutions Day 2021; more than double the number of participants that joined the event last year when it was a solely physical event. With COVID-19 travel restrictions in place, KAM pointed out how the hybrid mode made it possible to bring together cybersecurity experts from Mainland China, the US, Europe, Singapore and Israel to discuss hot topics, trends and innovations. “The aim is to provide multiple perspectives and investigate critical trends,” said KAM.
In addition to hosting cybersecurity-related seminars, demo days, awards programmes and conferences, KAM explained that, since 2016 when the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) launched the Cybersecurity Fortification Initiative, the Institute has been actively supporting the HKMA’s efforts in developing a sustainable talent pool of cybersecurity experts. For example, the HKIB administers the Enhanced Competency Framework (ECF) programme which offers training and examination programmes designed to support cybersecurity talent development in the banking sector. “The programme helps to raise cybersecurity knowledge, competencies and professionalism as well as provide a benchmark for the banking industry” KAM noted.
Cybersecurity Fortification Initiative 2.0
To help the banking industry respond to the fast-evolving cybersecurity landscape, in his regulatory keynote speech “Assuring Cyber-Resilience During Challenging Times”, Howard LEE, JP, Deputy Chief Executive, HKMA explained how the recently launched Cybersecurity Fortification Initiative (CFI)
2.0 has been designed to strengthen the cyber resilience assessment process, incorporate best practices on incident response and recovery, and facilitate the skills development of the Hong Kong cybersecurity talent pool.
